...and after that one can watch the even more excellent Paul Newman performance in The Hustler.

"Eddie!! You OWE me MONEY!" was one of our most common retorts in various HS settings (it was another movie we watched for a creative writing class...the guy loved Paul N., and those are two great flicks).

Trivia: do you know who utters those words, Lou? No cheating!

We have a winner! Does it count for much if you were the only participant? At least you didn't say "Gleason?"...

I've saved myself from what would have been unutterable shame, which has got to count for something. I must have seen that movie eight or ten times, and I continue to enjoy it.

Yup; darn good, darn good. I personally place Luke at the top of PN's amazing films of significance, but Hustler is damn fine as well. Having watched them in this creative writing class 3-5 times each in the early 70s, then once every few yrs since, including a handful with my own boys when they were in HS, I'd say I've easily seen them both > 12 times...never get old.
